Экшн камера 60 fps
It comes with a handy two-way remote control that can be strapped to your wrist for easy starting and stopping, there's a two-inch TFT color screen and four physical buttons for easy menu navigation. I then attached the board to an old bike helmet using velcro straps, and actually got it tight enough that there was virtually no wobble. You can't just do something dangerous and insane these days without filming it for posterity. Everybody loves a scrappy underdog, and this one had all of the specs of the big boys at a competitive price: 1080p shooting at 60 frames per second, 12MP stills, Wi-Fi for pairing with a smart phone, and even a new, custom-built lens.
So, in addition to spending time with each camera individually (usually using a head-strap mount), I built an ugly but effective rig for shooting with all six at once.
Also, you have to use the app from your phone or computer to adjust settings or know how much space you have left on your card.
In our evaluations we weighted image quality most heavily, but we also factored in versatility, ease-of-use, form-factor, battery-life, apps, available mounts, as well as extras and price.
The raw video footage was evaluated on a professionally calibrated monitor, as well as on a 46-inch 1080p Samsung LED TV, and several laptops.
The new Veho K-seriesВ Muvi K-2 NPNG action camera also offers double the bit rate video of the previous model, which has been increased to 32 Mbps, as well as a pre-record function, wireless connectivity and a waterproof casing enabling it to be submerge to depths of 100 meters. It seems to be ramping up the ISO like crazy, but everything is so noisy and distorted it doesn't really matter that it's brighter. All that said, if you're going to be shooting long, and only in bright daylight, and audio either isn't important or you're willing to use an external mic (there is a jack), this is still worth considering. It's worth noting that while there are six cameras and we had to rank them one through six, none of these objectively suck.
Unfortunately no US confirmed pricing or availability for the Veho K-series has been released as yet by Veho, but as soon as information is announced we will keep you updated as always.
The image quality looked pretty good in bright daylight (before the camera leaked), but the low-light shots are a noisy mess, and the audio is pretty lousy as well.
It's also built like a tank, has a threaded hole for tripod mounting, and a simple one-switch design. Aside from being the biggest and heaviest (not fun to wear on your head) camera we tested there are a lot of little annoying details. Its battery lasted a respectable two hours and 10 minutes in our rundown test, good enough for fourth place.
Considering that I was only paddling around for about 15 minutes in very weak surf, this doesn't give us confidence that it would make it to anywhere near 49 feet, though it's possible we just had a defective unit. At one point the rear cover become completely stuck on the device and we couldn't open it up to charge it or rescue the SD card. The Ion Air Pro 3 is supposed to be fully waterproof to an impressive 49 feet without the use of any additional cases. For example, the record button is tiny and looks just like the other three buttons, making it difficult to find, and the rear panel is actually really hard to open. And while action cameras let us relieve these life-highlights over and over, they aren't all created equal.
NOTE: We installed a firmware update for the Garmin Virb right before we went out to shoot the video above.
I packed the helmet full of bubble-wrap, taped the padding in, then used nylon tie-downs to attach the rig to the nose of a nine-foot surfboard.
It has a ton of options (including video tagging, and using the Drift as a looping dash-cam), and maybe it's just what you're looking for. While image quality is decidedly better than previous Drift models, the Ghost-S is still noticeably muddier than our top finishers. We didn't notice while we were shooting (roughly an hour after surfing), but clearly some water had gotten in and was fogging up the lens. Top of the range is the Veho K-seriesВ Muvi K-2 NPNG offering users 1080p HD video recording at maximum of 60fps (frames-per-second) together with 720p recording at 120 fps. Directly after surfing, I strapped the camera to my head and went for a trail ride in the Santa Monica Mountains.
Unfortunately, the one thing that could have really set the Ion apart from the pack is also where it stumbled. Once again, the Drift absolutely crushed everybody in the battery rundown test, coming in at a whopping 3 hours and 14 minutes. Bear in mind when you watch the above video that there is some quality lost to compression for internet streaming.
